COLOR PREP: Shred the wax dye blocks using a clean-up tool or cheese grater.
THREE: Split the wax in half. Check your temps again to be sure that your wax has not dipped below 155 degrees. Reheat for 15 second intervals if needed.
FOUR: Add 5-10 “flakes” (grated/shredded bits) of wax dye block to each split batch of wax. Stir well, until the flakes are completely melted into the wax.
FIVE: Pour a teeny bit of Lavender colored wax into the bottom of two of the flower pot containers, and a teeny bit of Red
colored wax in the other two. Stick the metal base of the wick into the wax, using the wax as “glue” to hold the wick in place. Allow the wax “glue” to harden.
SIX: Check the temperature of the wax again. Reheat if below 135 degrees. Pour wax into the flower pot containers, filling to just above the lip of the glass and matching the color of the wax used to hold the wicks in place.
SEVEN: Prop the wick up and into place using the pencils or chopsticks. Allow the wax to cool and fully harden (about 24 hours).
EIGHT: Trim the wicks to 1/4”. Light the candles and enjoy a bug-free evening on the porch!
